By the way, I used Twitter since early 2007, shortly after it launched. Not even in the early days there was anything like this on Twitter.
It was refreshing at the time, compared to the things that were available. But there never was anything like the effervescent passion for creative cross-pollination and delightfully libertine thinking that happens on Mastodon as a matter of course.

Mastodon is nothing like Twitter, Mastodon is what Twitter should have been.

I like many things about Masto. But what I like most is that out-of-the-box, left-brain things happen often here. Like stumbling upon someone who understands a relatively obscure French film from 1996 based on an even more obscure 1916 French film, a guy who builds supercomputers as a hobby, a subculture that publishes poetry using the long-deceased, now-revived Gopher system.
And I could go on with the whimsical, and the unbounded creativity that emerges when the profit motive is removed.

@dansup When you take VC, you sell the company. No ifs, no buts. We keep getting surprised as the sale usually just takes several years to complete. C’est la “exit”.

This is why VC investment is incompatible with sustainable businesses with social missions. And why I keep harping on about how we must support projects that benefit the commons from the commons (ar.al/notes/encouraging-indivi)

@charlyblack @InspectorCaracal @Gargron Avoid anything which centralizes attention within the network. Trending hashtags, global rankings or scores, things like that. They will all reproduce the bad aspects of Birdsite. People should find stuff through community engagement and algorithms aren't a good substitute.

Figures, I forgot to tag this with #ScreenshotSaturday :T

Ah well, here's another gif of the same terribly-designed map.

I still need to add hazy super-background trees, so it's all pretty flat for now.

@h @wakest I’m excited to see bugs getting squished more quickly.

If Signal jumps the shark we’re still got the protocol and the source code to work with.

Mildly tecchnical article about a new technique for recovering early photographic images on daguerreotypes which had previously been considered lost. It.potentially means the recovery of 200 year old photographs.

For fucks sake Signal on iOS has no way to export my history. This is absurd. I tried to login to Signal on my Android phone and it didn't warn me that by doing that logs me out of the version on iOS and theres no way to log back in without deleting all my messages and history. That is so fucking dumb. I am hating Signal more and more. And going through their replies in repos Moxie is so rude to everyone. What a sad state of affairs.

@Gargron I will indeed pin it but you can also add it to hashbase.io/ and then it will be online all the time.

@wakest
a bit unrelated to the software, but since reading #PreciousPlastic workshop, in #rojava, specially the internationalist commune is looking for solutions to reuse their plastic waste. currently a lot seems to get burned.

It's part of their 'make #rojava green again' work.
